Marshall Page is a partner and co-leads the Corporate Practice Group. Marshall primarily practices in the areas of M&A, private equity investment, joint ventures, project development, and the associated financings, with special emphasis in the energy, maritime, and advanced manufacturing industries.
Described by clients as "a very adept, thoughtful and professional negotiator" who is "very practical and creative in finding solutions" as referenced in Chambers USA – America's Leading Lawyers for Business, Marshall has deep experience in multi-party, multi-faceted transactions, where he is able to simplify complex situations and invent novel solutions to intractable problems. He thrives in difficult negotiations where patience, intellect, civility, and creativity are at a premium.
Marshall's projects often transcend a single area of practice, typically including both an investment and a financing component and involving multiple parties, each of which seeks divergent but compatible results from negotiations. Adept at soliciting and anticipating the goals of each transaction party, Marshall develops win-win solutions that address each party's needs. During negotiations, he is nimble at developing proposals that address counterparty concerns without compromising the material interests of his own client.
Although he routinely handles transactions in many industries, Marshall concentrates in energy, maritime, and advanced manufacturing. His energy industry work focuses on investments, M&A, and project development, with a particular emphasis on the downstream sector. Marshall is well-versed in projects involving multi-party, integrated sites where allocation of risks and integration of supply and support needs create complexities to resolve.
Marshall has more than 20 years of experience structuring, negotiating and documenting financings and investments to support projects that generate federal and state tax credits, including transactions rated by the major rating agencies. He regularly handles project financings, primarily backed by industrial or marine assets, and structured financings, often to support tax credit transactions.
